This documentation is for Dovecot v2.x, see wiki1 for v1.x documentation.

Dovecot and Postfix runs in their own Solaris Zone with access to users home directories which are compressed ZFS on top of hardware RAID-5. Dovecot Indexes are placed outside home directories on RAID-10 spool, file system is again compressed ZFS. Compress ratio for indexes is 1.86x, for mail it is anything between 1.0 - 2.0x. Accounts are stored in MySQL database. Dovecot is compiled with Sun Studio 12.

Yes, system is a bit over engineered.
